1994 Straight axle conversion

I have a 1994 ranger single cab 2wd and I want to put a straight axle in it but I don't know what axles to buy! Any ideas ?

there are too many variables here still. What are you looking to do with the truck?
what engine do you have? are you going to keep that engine?

I would suggest doing a lot of reading. If you don't know what axle to buy you probably don't have the know how to do an SAS anyway. Read a lot and then read a lot more.

Its not a snide comment. You gave us no information and I have been around long enough to know that when people ask what you ask they don't know what they are doing. I just stated that you need to read all the SAS threads that are on this site and then ask us questions. There is no step by step instructions.

Anyway your axles will depend on what you plan to do with the truck. You could run a D30, D44, D60 or rockwells. There are a lot of different axles that could be used.

https://www.ranger-forums.com/solid-axle-swaps-111/solid-axle-swap-build-threads-105259/

There are 29 SAS threads at that link and more on the site. That is thousands and thousands of posts on doing an SAS.

The 77 ford bronco had Dana 44 disk brakes and fits really well in a ranger

This. The above is a good swap since it retains the same coilspring and radius arm setup, just from the donor vehicle...or if you like new long arms (custom or aftermarket).
